Educational reseller RM Group to continue its market dominance as the next academic year is set to begin, according to Dresdner Kleinwort Benson. The company's share have rise from just over 150 pence to nearly 400 pence in the last year on the back of speculation of government funding being directed its way. Mark Loveland, an analyst at Dresdner Kleinwort Benson, said: "The thing you have to look at is government funding. RM is the present market leader and has been gaining market share over the last five years. It also released a very nice product at the beginning of this year, which makes it a natural tip for good performance." The government has allocated £400 million over the next four years to schools for spending on technology. Currently the average school spend less than one per cent of its budget on technology and DKB expects that school will tend to spend more in the future, approaching the four per cent of budget spent by the most technology focused schools.®
